We often stray'd where lilies grew
Beside the river's brink.
To bathe our faces and our feet,
And take a cooling drink;
Or sit among the bullrushes,
Fanned by the gentle breeze;
Where 1, as happy as a queen,
SWould eat my bread and cheese.

No little folk for miles around
Could beat my kid and I
In climbing on old ivy walls,
Old ruins or castles high.
c And when I'd run upon the hill
To view the ships at sea,
.- My pet would very quietly stand
To have a look with me.
And when to chase a butterfly,
With joy and glee I'd run,
My kid would frolic after me,
And quite enjoy the fun.
